Overview

The suffering of those who have lost loved ones can be deep, unending and lonely. It is surprising how easy it is to touch a raw nerve.

When trying to help you're faced with a difficult task finding words of comfort: what can you say to a mother whose child has died? how can you console her when the tears keep coming and the ache refuses to go away?

At these times we feel our need for help the most: the help that can only come from those whose experience mirrors ther person we wish to comfort. In this book you will find people who have experienced and understood loss, have shared times of hope, and proved the ever listening God.

Let Elaine Brown take you, for a while, into the lives of those who have lost, and yet lived. This is a practical, sensitive approach to death and dying - as one says in the book, 'One day I shall join them, and the long sadness will be over.'

Life, after all, is only the beginning of so much more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
An invaluable book on facing up to death as a Christian. Elaine Brown writes movingly and convincingly on a topic not often dealt with in Christian literature. Beyond death is a wonderful experience for the believer, but death itself is an enemy - our last enemy. Presented from various points of view, the author deals with the reactions of several Christians to the death of loved ones, or knowing what they themselves have a terminal illness. We are brought to identify vividly with each story as it is told in personal terms. By no means does each believer triumph easily over the problems; we are shown the anguish and heartache as well as the joy and peace in believing. This is not an easy book to read, but it is not morbid and it is one I would keep and read again and again. ~ Yvonne Vine, Evangelical Magazine of Wales
